Thinking of selling my car...help me decide!

2002 Ford Focus ZX3 2.0L DOHC
43,572 miles
Power moonroof
power windows, locks
SVT Header Kit w/ SVT powersteering line
2.5" Trubendz flexpipe
2.5" Random Tech Hi Flow Cat
2.5" Trubendz Borla Cat-back
Massive MSX 90 Ignition Performance Package
CFM 65mm TB
Eibach Pro-System (springs and shocks)
Roush Performance rear sway bar
18" Kazera KZ-S Chrome Wheels
5% tint all the way around
Viper Security System w/autostart
ATI C2 Procharger (10psi)
Front Mount Intercooler
60lb Injectors
Diablo MAFia
Custom piping by Tom from IC to TB
3" MAF tube by Tom
Greddy Type-RS BOV
Full Pillar dual gauge pod
AEM UEGO Wideband A/F gauge w/sensor
Autometer 20psi Boost gauge
Xcal 2 (tuning by Tom to be continued by new owner, or screw it and get it dyno tuned)

Here's a little info on the car and why I might sell it...

Exterior is in great shape just a few minor dents on the driver's side front fender. Tires are pretty much new. Motor runs great and is filled with royal purple. Transmission slips from 2-3 and 3-4, ATX, just needs new clutches. All the parts listed above are not even a year old and only have about 1,500 miles on them. Interior is clean. Sorry but I can't part with my stereo system. But there will be something in there. Back hatch area is layed with dynamat as well as the driver's side door. Never got a chance to finish the other side. New rear brake shoes. Brand new front axles as well. Also the ac condenser needs to be replace and the ac vac'd and recharged. I have a brand new Motorcraft ac condenser sitting in my garage. I will probably install it and get the ac going if I have time. If not the ac condenser will go in the back seat for the buyer to install. Brand new Die Hard Gold Battery. Clean title as well.

I started this build almost a year ago. Since then I have run into many issues. Not with the car but with my daughter's health and the decision to donate a kidney to her. I have had little time to tune it with Tom. To this day the car isn't tuned. I have never seen 10lbs of boost or little boost for that matter. I just don't have the time to mess with it any more. If I sell it as is the tuning will have to be continued with Tom if he agrees which I'm sure shouldn't be a problem. The tuning is paid for already. Or the new owner can just take it and have it dyno tuned.

I want to get an SVT. I am looking to either trade straight up for an SVT in mint condition and low miles or sell the car as is and buy an SVT.

What do you guys think the car would be worth if I sold it as is today? I was thinking around $10-11k but I'm not sure. If I go by KBB here is what it shows as a completely stock car, private party value:

Excellent: $7,365
Good: $6,860
Fair: $6,180

I would list mine as Fair ONLY because of the transmission and AC problem. And then considering I have about $4-$5k in mods I think $10-$11k for a sale price is fair. What do you guys think?

Any other ideas?

The procharger is installed. All those parts I listed are currently installed. I was just pondering parting it out but now that I think of it I would rather sell it as is.

Wow, that is one hell of a gorgeous car. I LOVE the rims. I'd say keep it.
